I’m worried about the relationship between two of my favorite former Wildcats, DeMarcus Cousins and Devin Booker.
Last night, the two engaged in a minor Cat-on-Cat scuffle after Booker was called for an off-ball foul while fighting through a Cousins screen. Cousins took a little offense to Booker’s shove on the screen, so he responded with a gentle and harmless shove of his own after the whistle. Booker retaliated and the two had to be separated by an official.
If I’m not mistaken, these two got into a shoving match during a Kings-Suns game last season. And then there’s the infamous story of Booker and Ulis squaring up with Cousins in a summer scrimmage prior to their freshman season at Kentucky in 2014, when Cousins was in town for a weekend.
Coach Cal, get on the phone and get these two together. We can’t have turmoil between two of BBN’s all-time favorites.
